Infant Programs

At A Child’s Academy, your baby gets extra-special care. Our Infant Room was designed with safety and comfort in mind. We also seek to provide valuable stimulation when your baby is awake and alert, to promote essential development. Babies play, listen to stories, and interact with teachers and caregivers.

They also enjoy rides in our safe strollers to enjoy fresh air on the days when the weather cooperates!

Activities for Infants:

  • Physical Stimulation. Young babies are developing at a very fast pace at this stage. We present gross motor activities to help build and fine-tune movement skills to achieve simple body movements for mobile infants.
  • Ball games help to produce movements of the legs as well as the hands, developing coordination.
  • Bell Anklets produce important leg movement.
  • Turning and changing position promotes movement in the large muscle groups.
  • Offering objects at a reasonable distance is designed to produce movement in small muscle groups and also requires concentration skills.
  • Crawl games are any activity that stimulates your baby’s crawling mechanisms.
  • Intellectual Stimulation. Through verbal exchanges, playing music, and making various noises, we guide your infant to explore objects for size, shape, color, texture, movement, position, and sound. In this way, we facilitate bottle holding, fingering foods, picking up small objects, and learning to creep, crawl, and walk.
  • Social Development. Through interaction with familiar people and each other, the babies receive reassurance and nurturing at all times. Our caregivers offer a gentle touch and a calm voice while encouraging friendly play.

To keep you abreast of your child’s progress, our staff keeps a log of all of your child’s feedings, diaper changes and activities, as well as his or her general mood and disposition. A copy of your infant’s daily report is given to you every day.

Better Hygiene

We consistently earn an A+ in Good Hygiene! We have incorporated a strict protocol to ensure a clean, healthy environment:

  • Dedicated Cribs. We guarantee a dedicated crib for your baby, where all the crib paraphernalia and toys are his or hers alone.
  • Sleeping Mats. Each one-year-old sleeps on the same mat every day at nap time. Every mat is disinfected daily.
  • Vertical Cribs isolate a child from other children.
  • Crib Sheets are changed on a regular basis.
  • Changing Tables are disinfected after each diaper change.
  • Crib Toys are disinfected regularly and are never shared by two infants.
  • Play Mats are disinfected after each use.
  • Hand Washing. Teachers use disinfectant soap in regular hand-washings.
  • Nightly Cleaning. In addition to area cleanings during the day, the Infant Room is thoroughly cleaned every night.

Why our Parents Love ACA:

Click Here to Read what some of our parents have to say about ACA.
“Our daughter hasn’t attended A Child’s Academy very long but already we’ve seen major difference in her excitement to learn. What we really love about ACA may seem like a very small matter but it’s really important to us, is the nutritional meals provided. Our daughter REFUSED to eat any vegetables before attending ACA. I tried different seasonings and dips to make it fun, but she still wouldn’t eat them. After hearing about the awesome cook, Ms. Roberta, and how she works magic in the kitchen, we decided to give it another try and present her with green beans. When I placed the plate in front in of her, her eyes lit up “Mmmm mommy! Ms. Roberta makes these”! She ate all of her green beans and asked for more. Now she is having her proper serving of vegetables with every meal. Thank you ACA and a special thank you to Ms. Roberta.”
